La La Land star Emma Stone announced about three years ago that she will be playing the iconic Disney villian Cruella de Vil a live-action prequel of the classic 1996 movie starring Glenn Close. Unlike the older films, Cruella de Vil will be the upcoming film’s main protagonist, set in the 70s.
Last weekend Disney’s official social media account posted a picture of Emma in character and on the set of Cruella in London, with the villain’s signature black-and-white frizzy hair and a modern chequered leather jacket. We love the new punk element of the costume, looking like a Vivienne Westwood and Chanel crossover in a Tim Burton world!
The Hundred and One Dalmatians is a 1956 children’s novel by Dodie Smith about the kidnapping of a family of Dalmatian puppies. The latest Disney live action will be in cinemas May 2021.
